Day 24: More lemons please!

I am feeling tired - 7 teaching periods in a row is a killer - good thing this happens only on Tuesdays. Why is it that I used to be able to work a 10-hour day without blinking, while entertaining the troops for 7 x 45 minutes drains me of 98% of my energy, the remaining 2% being used up completely by the kids when I get home...

Good thing I didn't worry about the lemon experiment - it went just fine and the girls had the batteries up and running in no time. They also completed a few other experiments I had designed so that they can learn all about the marvelous choreography of electrons (and static electricity). And even those went really well... imagine my surprise...

Enjoy the shortness of this post - my brain is a vacuum of empty thoughts (even that doesn't make sense...).

Seven in a row is tough. I had four consecutive classes a few years ago and was ready to pull my hair out.

Where as I'm not a teacher I can't relate to the class schedules but I sure know what it's like to come back from a day of work totaly drained. Some days all I want to do is curl up in a chair and forget the whole world exists for a few hours. Course spouses and children will typically kill any prospects of that.

I'll try again... good job on the lemon experiment. I'm waiting to hear how the nuclear bomb thing went.

  • Challenges... don't we all love a good challenge? University, married life, a mortgage, kids, keeping my sanity while we cruise through life at 100 MPH... why not try my hand at teaching for a year. After all, a school year is only 180 days - anyone should be able to survive 180 days, right? Well, I'm about to find out - follow my journey and enjoy my trials and tribulations as I embark in this 180 day rollercoaster ride of teenage hormones and drama, spiked with discipline, homework, exams and surprises I'm sure...
